Activision today announced a deal with Endemol USA and ABC TV for a Wipeout game on the Nintendo DS and Wii this summer. Wipeout: The Game challenges fans to master speed, balance, and precision while enduring the inevitable hilarious falls, sometimes at the hands of your friends and family!

Activision“Watching ABC’s Wipeout every week on TV is outrageous fun, and viewers can't help but dream of trying the obstacles themselves,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “We designed the video game with this in mind. Wipeout: The Game brings all of the challenge and laugh-out-loud hilarity, without the pain.”

In Wipeout: The Game, players will prove they have what it takes to make it to the grand finale “Wipeout Zone” for their chance to be proclaimed champion. Four players can compete at the same time, even allowing players to hurl objects at and taunt their opponents. The video game features everything that people love about the hit ABC show, including commentary from the show’s hosts, John Anderson, John Henson and co-host Jill Wagner. Players will have to run, jump and dodge all of Wipeout’s various obstacles, including the brutal Sucker Punch, the beloved Big Balls, and the insanely difficult Sweeper.

“For the past 2 summers, ABC’s Wipeout has continued to splash its way into the homes of millions of American families. We are excited to partner with Activision to bring family-friendly, laugh-out-loud fun into people’s living rooms in a whole new way,” says Mia Rondinella, Vice President of Business Planning & Development, ABC Entertainment Group. “Wipeout: The Game will provide fans with their own chance to run the obstacles, take on the Big Red Balls and challenge family and friends - all while the hosts provide a fun-filled color commentary.”

“We couldn't be more thrilled about our partnership with Activision, one of the best producers of cutting edge video games in the world,” said David Goldberg, Chairman of Endemol North America. “From day one, we believed that Wipeout's action oriented, comedic sensibility lent itself perfectly to the video game genre and it's very exciting to see our ambition realized. Now, the countless fans who express their interest in running the Wipeout course will get their chance and they'll even be able to do so minus, the mud, foam, colored paint, cold water in the comfort of their homes.”

Wipeout: The Game is set to bring all of the spills, thrills, and competitive fun of America’s favorite reality game show to Nintendo DS™ and Wii™ owners this summer just in time for the premiere of the TV show’s highly anticipated 3rd season.
